Shake It Up This St. Patrick's Day (Bash Your Stash; Shaker Elements)

I've been on a shaker card roll. They are so fun and can be used for (almost) any occasion. I don't normally send St. Patrick's Day cards, but hey, why not now?

I used my Cricut to design/cut the shamrocks out of a rectangle base. What I also did was cut a circle shape slightly larger than the shamrock. The reason why is I thought it would be easier to adhere the 3D foam tape to the circle shape versus the odd shape of the shamrocks.

Check out the video below to see how I created the shaker elements first & then put the card together:

What inspired me to create my own shaker elements? I purchased a Halloween shaker element pack for $6.99 for no other reason than it look fun. When I went to put it away, I noticed that I have four different Halloween shaped confetti. What?! I really should return it but is one of the return choices, stupidity?

That made me realize that I can create my own shaker elements. So I dug in and Bashed My Stash! I'm imagining that this will be a great project if I'm ever in a creative funk and just want to play.

Watch the video, see how I fix a big mistake and still come out with a fun card.

I love the addition of the Cool Pool and Gold Color Silks to finish the card - just what it needed!
